    Chris Christie’s latest misery: N.J.’s finances

    Here’s how drastically Chris Christie’s political fortunes have turned: Bridgegate might not be his biggest problem.

    Just as the New Jersey governor is trying to turn the corner on the traffic scandal and restore his national luster, now he’s getting blamed for a yawning budget deficit and recent downgrade of the state’s debt.

    Christie and state lawmakers have less than two months to close a sudden budget hole. Analysts say the governor’s administration brought on the problem by projecting the state would collect much more in tax revenue than it did; Christie’s aides insist the Legislature and changes in federal tax laws bear some of the blame.

    Either way, the stream of bad headlines could undercut a central tenet of Christie’s comeback attempt and message in a potential 2016 bid: that he’s led an economic “miracle” in the Garden State.

    His allies have been adamant that he won’t be personally ensnared by the bridge scandal and that his record will carry him to national glory. But the financial woes may mean Christie will have even more explaining to do.

    “Ultimately, governors live or die politically on the economic performance of their state,” said Mark McKinnon, a former strategist to George W. Bush. “If the economy gets much worse in New Jersey, Gov. Christie may want to close another bridge.”

      His face looked slimmer at the white house correspondents dinner. I wonder if the stress of it all is getting to him.

  • Miranda

    This pretty much sums it up:

    “there is a fundamental flaw at the heart of Republicans’ remediation effort: It’s not debates that hurt a party’s nominee. It’s what the candidates onstage are saying during the debates.
    To think otherwise is akin to blaming a sports car for speeding or a tall tree if a child falls and hurts himself.”

    Ted Cruz Is Attacking Obama for Relocating a Shrubbery
    By Tim Murphy Fri May 9, 2014 11:30 AM EDT

    On Wednesday, Sen. Ted Cruz released “The Legal Limit Report No. 4,” a comprehensive report on the Obama administration’s “persistent power of lawlessness” and abuses of power. “In the more than two centuries of our nation’s history,” Cruz wrote—outlining a period in which American citizens were rounded up and put in camps, deprived of habeas corpus, and routinely denied basic rights on the basis of race—”there is simply no precedent for the White House wantonly ignoring federal law and asking others to do the same.”

    Given those stakes, much of what’s on Cruz’s list is pretty trivial. Not only are many of the abuses several dozen bureaucratic rungs beneath the president’s purview, but there’s no real explanation of how they might be remotely classified as lawless abuses. Here are the eight silliest items on the list:

    Hola POU! We got Sis home, fed her a nice healthy lunch. She is supposed to be napping but she is panting over my shoulder reading & listening to POU. She told me to say “HOLA!” & gracias for all your prayers & good wishes.

    We have been listening to this week’s Roberta Flack. Sis loves Roberta Flack! She has issues with St Augustine which I won’t go into now. She has actually read through all his “confessions.”

    • Alma98

      Hola AG & sis! I’m glad she’s home surrounded by loved ones.
      Nothing heals like the love of family! I made mom and my sisters a pasta dish for mother’s day along with a strawberry shortcake for dessert. Also gave them all flowers and cards, I won’t see them till late tomorrow so I dropped it off today. My sister warned the nephews not to go near the food or else lol.

      • Aquagranny911

        Sis wants to know if she can have some & will there be whipped cream on the strawberry shortcake? I told her “NO!” She’s on a really strict diet until the pounds come off & the cholesterol count goes way down. If she pokes me one more time I’m going to smack her!

        • Alma98

          She can have some pasta I made it with fiber based pasta, chicken, grape tomatoes and broccoli. Of course the cake has whip cream, how about a strawberry mango smoothie for dessert lol.

      AG,

      so glad your sister is home and surrounded by family. I still don’t think I’ll get past the hospital complaining about all the loved ones who were interested in her care.

      • Aquagranny911

        Riky, I think that was racist. The woman who made all the stink has issues with “Mexicans.” We let it go while Sis was there because we did not want trouble. But now Sis is safe home, I do plan to lodge a complaint with hospital Admin about this person.

    • Miranda

      That’s great news – glad she’s enjoying the music! It can have a healing effect!

      • Aquagranny911

        She loved your music shares & singing along is one of the things that her speech therapists said is so excellent for her. Sis is a gifted musician with a lovely voice. She plays the guitar & taught herself piano after she retired. Music means a lot to her. When she gets stuck with her speech, I tell her: “Sing it to me!” & usually she can.

    • http://batman-news.com Mi

      Fantastic news AG! Lol @ your Sis and St. Augustine’s “confessions”. Her mind and humor obviously still tops. We look forward to the physical manifestation of our prayers for her: A complete reversal of any and all damage done by the stroke.

    The situation in Nigeria is so much more complex than we can even begin to imagine. So much at play. It doesn’t help that even some of the Nigerian elite are convinced that the kidnapping of the girls is some sort of ploy to destabilize Nigeria – not by the terrorists, but by Western governments. The culprits according to a professor in one of their top universities, is the “powerful Gay and abortion rights mafia” who’ve been bribing Nigerian politicians to legalize what they consider an “abomination”; and of course the American government in cahoots with American oil companies, looking to invade them for their oil, under the guise of offering protection from terrorists. Oh, and they’ve also thrown in their version about the “New world Order” and the “Illuminati” taking over. The whole thing is so sad and frustrating to watch.

    Tracee Ellis Ross Will Play Anthony Anderson’s Wife In ABC’s Kenya Barris Pilot, ‘Black-ish’
    News
    by Tambay A. Obenson
    February 20, 2014 11:40 AM

    Tracee Ellis Ross has joined Anthony Anderson and Laurence Fishburne in ABC’s Kenya Barris pilot, Black-ish (working title).
    Based on Barris’ own life (loosely), Black-ish will follow an upper-middle class black man, intent on raising his kids with some sense of cultural identity, in the face of an assault of constant contradictions and obstacles coming from various directions, insisting that his children be color-blind.

    “I decided to do this project when I looked up and realized that everywhere I go I’m constantly the fly in buttermilk… I’m usually THE Black guy at work. We’re THE Black family in the neighborhood. My kids are basically THE Black kids at school. I think it’s kind of a situation of be careful what you wish for. It’s almost in like moving on up, I’ve sort of priced myself “out” of being Black,” said Barris.
    Anderson will play the lead, with Fishburne as his old-school father. Tracee Ellis Ross will play Anderson’s wife.

    Black-ish is produced by Fishburne and his producing partner Helen Sugland, with Tom Russo, Anderson and Barris exec producing, along with Peter Principato, Paul Young and Brian Dobbins.

    Barris’ writing credits also include (Are We There Yet?, Soul Food, Girlfriends, The Game) and he’s also co-creator of America’s Next Top Model.

    Remembering James Earl Jones As ‘Paris’ (1979) & Louis Gossett, Jr. In ‘The Lazarus Syndrome’ (1978)
    by Emmanuel Akitobi
    April 24, 2014 4:22 PM

    Not too long ago, Sergio reminded us of the 1973 NBC Mystery Movie series Tenafly, which featured a black actor, James McEachin, as its lead. In his post on the experimental-for-its-time monthly program, Sergio remarked, “Maybe it’s my imagination [but], compared to what we have today, there seemed to be a lot more black TV series back in the day.”

    Sergio went on to say, “And there was a diversity in them too, from sitcoms to dramas. Not all of them were great (not even remotely) or were hits, but at least they were there.”

    That got me wondering about what other forgotten TV shows there are out there that many of us have forgotten, or never saw, and may never have a chance to see again.

    Before famed TV show creator Steven Bochco gave us TV classics such as Hill Street Blues and NYPD Blue, he created a police drama series in 1979 for CBS called Paris, which featured none other than acclaimed stage/film actor James Earl Jones in the lead role of Detective Capt. Woodrow “Woody” Paris. As Paris, Jones played a veteran LAPD captain who led a team of newer, younger detectives. Paris also moonlighted as a university criminology professor, and was married to a nurse.

    Paris featured a diverse supporting cast that included actress Lee Chamberlin, as Paris’ wife Barbara; and actor Michael Warren, as Det. Willie Miller. Rounding out the cast were Hank Garrett, Cecilia Hart, Frank Ramirez, and Jake Mitchell.

    In 1979, I was a child, so I obviously never saw an episode of Paris. But I’ve watched a lot of TV since then, and I’d be hard pressed to name another TV series, led by a black actor, with a similarly diverse supporting cast, that has aired on CBS since then.

    In my quest to learn more about CBS’ Paris, I also learned that the ABC network had attempted similar programming a year prior with the airing of The Lazarus Syndrome, starring Louis Gossett, Jr. in the lead role of Dr. MacArthur St. Clair, a medical doctor caught up in a web of deceit and adultery at the hospital in which he resided.

    Interview: Naturi Naughton Talks ‘Power’, Starring in Regina King’s Directorial Debut, Desires to Play Patti LaBelle, and More
    Interviews
    by Jai Tiggett
    April 22, 2014 1:06 PM

    In the upcoming Starz drama Power, Naturi Naughton co-stars as the wife of Ghost (Omari Hardwick), a New York nightclub owner living a double life as a drug kingpin. Created by 50 Cent, the series is set to premiere this summer.

    Naughton has starred in a string of film and television projects since starting her career as a teenage member of R&B group 3LW in the early 2000s, and most notably appeared as Lil Kim in the Notorious BIG biopic Notorious. This fall, she’ll star in BET’s original movie Let the Church Say Amen, the directorial debut for Regina King.

    The actress recently spoke with Shadow And Act about her new projects and what we can look forward to seeing from her next.

    JAI TIGGETT: What can you share about your character in Power?

    NATURI NAUGHTON: Tasha St. Patrick, she’s crazy. She really is Ghost’s sidekick, the other half of Bonnie and Clyde. She came up from the streets, grew up in Queens, and had a rough life. She had desires to be a singer but those desires got cut short because she was pregnant at 19 with Ghost’s child. He’s trying to choose between going legit and staying in the drug game, and she’s pretty much the woman who’s like look, we’ve built this empire together, I’ll ride with you to the end. She’ll throw the gun away, she’ll tell you how to dump the body. She’s an edgy character and not afraid to do whatever it takes to keep the family together.

    First Look At Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett In Lee Daniels’ ‘Empire’
    Television
    by Tambay A. Obenson
    May 9, 2014 9:04 PM

    Here’s your first look at Lee Daniels’ hip hop/family drama series Empire, which is set up at FOX, for a 2014/2015 debut.

    Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Jussie Smollett, Macy Gray, Bryshere Y. Gray (aka rapper Yazz The Greatest), Trai Byers, Gabourey Sidibe, Malik Yoba, and Grace Gealey make up the cast.

    The project, which reportedly sparked a bidding war among the 4 major broadcast networks last year, received a pilot commitment from FOX, and is described as a drama about a family-run hip-hop empire, hence the title.

    Howard plays Lucious Lyon, a charismatic, but tough chief of a record label titled Empire Entertainment, which is on the verge of an IPO.

    Meanwhile, Henson is Cookie Lyon, the ex-wife of Lucious Lyon, who’s described as a “total badass” with a prison record (she served 17 years for dealing drugs, and used the money to help finance Lucious’ growing music empire, when it was still in its early days). She’s now out of prison, and has come for what’s hers!

    Jussie Smollett plays their son, Jamal, a fledgling rapper himself, who is also gay – something that Lucious, the father, has a problem with.

    Macy Gray will appear as Tasha, a woman having an affair with Bryshere Y. Gray’s character, Hakeem Lyon, Lucious’ other son, the youngest, and Lucious’ favorite, and the frontrunner to take over his father’s empire.

    Trai Byers will play Andre, Lucious’ oldest son, described as tall and brilliant, but with a dark side, and Grace Gealey will play Anika, the head of A&R for Empire Entertainment, and Lucious’ current girlfriend.

    Finally, Gabourey Sidibe will recur as Lucious’ hard-working assistant Becky, and Malik Yoba will do the same, as his longtime friend from the streets and business associate, who is now Empire Entertainment’s chairman of the board.

    Let all the family drama ensue!

    Georgia voters roundly disapprove of lawmakers’ expansion this year of the state’s gun laws despite being more likely to believe gun ownership helps protect people from becoming victims of a crime, according to a new poll conducted for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    The poll, conducted by Abt SRBI of New York, is the first time Georgians have weighed in on the expansion since legislation passed the state Legislature in March and Gov. Nathan Deal signed it in April. The results come only weeks ahead of the May 20 primary election and affirm an AJC poll in January that showed voters strongly opposing what was then one of lawmakers’ signature proposals.

    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at “Maleficent” Private Reception

    Posted on May 09, 2014

    No Pitting or Pulling a Jolie here, darlings. They’re on the very best red carpet behavior.

    “Pitting” and “Pulling a Jolie” are terms we coined which are now in wide use the world over and we shouldn’t have to explain them to you because everyone knows what they mean and regularly laud us for our brilliance in coming up with them. We’re pretty sure they’re in the dictionary and everything. But for those of you who aren’t up on the absolute latest in bitchy lingo, “Pitting” refers to guys who think they’re so good looking they don’t have to put any effort in on the red carpet and “Pulling a Jolie” means roughly the same thing for the ladystars. These two were always the height of giving no fucks on the RC.

    Which is why it’s so nice to see them both putting the effort in lately. There’s nothing wrong with being put together and elegant, amirite, Brad and Angie? Especially as you get a little older and branch out in your careers into things like producing and charity work. She looks truly spectacular. She and Elle are clearly dressing like their characters for the poledance, and while we wouldn’t normally applaud being so literal about it, we think this is a case where they and the movie are well served by making that constant connection between star and role. Also: that’s the best makeup job we’ve seen on her in some time. She looks radiant.

    – – –Michelle Obama holds conversation with military veteran spouses in New Orleans

    – – – – –First lady Michelle Obama spoke with about a dozen military and veteran spouses in New Orleans Saturday about the challenges they face in the transition back to civilian life.

    Obama visited the city to deliver a commencement address at Dillard University and “jumped at the chance” to fit in the conversation at the National World War II Museum, she said. She runs a military family support initiative, Joining Forces, with Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden.

    Obama said such roundtables give her a crucial reality check.

    “We’re all up in Washington hoping that what we’re doing is impacting you all on the ground,” she said. “It gives us a sense of what’s working, what’s not.”

    She said she finds the strength and sacrifices of military families inspiring. “You all keep me going,” she said, leaning forward and pressing her hands on the table. “There are so few people who understand what it means to do the kind of service you’re doing.”
